We promise no one will even notice!

With the holidays quickly approaching, people get worried about holiday weight gain with all the tempting foods that surround them at family gatherings.
Here are 6 super simple tips and tricks to cut fat and calories in your favorite dishes and we promise, no one will be able to tell the difference!

FOR Mashed potatoes

Instead of milk and butter, use seasoned chicken broth when you making your mashed potatoes. Another great truck is to do half white potatoes and half boiled cauliflower. Boil and mash potatoes and cauliflower well, add salt, pepper, crushed garlic and slowly add in chicken stock.

FOR Sweet mashed potatoes

Same concept as above, but use cooked butter nut squash ( you can even get it frozen already puréed). Add potatoes, squash, cinnamon, a little stevia. Mash and slowly add chicken stock. I even like a little sugar free maple syrup.

FOR Carrots

Boil baby carrots and finish off with sugar free maple syrup before serving.

FOR Stuffing

Instead of butter, use chicken stock or cut the amount of butter in half, and make up the difference with the stock. Also adding celery, carrots, onion, garlic and mushrooms bulks it up and adds a ton of fiber and flavor.

For pies

Stick with one crust pies. They have less crust, which equals less fat. Choose pumpkin over pecan and fruit pies. You can also make sugar free pudding pies.
It doesn’t take a chef to create health conscious holiday meals, just a little creative thinking!  Happy Holidays!
